As part of the next step in our municipal reopening process, Town Hall and the Senior Center will return to full in-person staffing on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. We anticipate reopening the building to the public on an appointment-only basis as a subsequent step with the exact date to be determined. The Hingham Public Library anticipates reopening to the public in a limited capacity on June 1 as well, and more details will be posted on the Library’s website soon. In addition, the Recreation Department is moving forward with a wide array of spring and summer programming; details can be found on the Hingham Recreation website.
June 1 was chosen as it gives Town employees and residents the time and opportunity to get vaccinated once the vaccine becomes available to the general public on April 19. As of April 8, about one quarter (27%) of Hingham residents are fully vaccinated.
Implementing the above changes on June 1 is an important next step toward a return to normal, and we appreciate the public’s patience and support throughout the pandemic. We will continue to make the health and safety of our residents and staff our top priority, while still delivering a high level of service to the community. The reopening process may vary for each municipal facility and additional updates about our reopening plans will be shared in the coming weeks on the Town website.
